Team Spirit

Keep the Tank Full

December 6, 2016

Your team is the fuel that keeps the engine running! There is no time when you need them more than during the busiest season of the year. These 5 ways to bring good energy and team spirit to your salon will help keep the tank full throughout the holiday season.

Try rewarding your staff with a tip each week! Who made a difference, supported their colleagues, sold the most retail or simply kept their cool during this hectic time of year? Give them a well-deserved tip: a $50 bill for all their hard work.

Showcasing your team is an inexpensive and worthwhile way to engage your guests, strengthen relationships and give your best stylists a voice. Launch this fun incentive where a different stylist will be featured online each month of the year. Give back to your team and help them build their personal brand!


Seemingly a thing of the past, this classic method for showing appreciation can make your staff feel special. Ensure that your notes are specific: include why you are recognizing them and how they made a difference.

Be your team’s fairy godmother and make their wishes come true. Leave a stack of blank cards next to a “wish box” where staff members can make a request. At the end of the week, grant one of the wishes from the box. Be the hero and make someone’s day!

Purchase and wrap small gifts, and keep them by a jar containing everyone’s names. At the end of your busiest days, draw a name from the jar and have that person pick a gift. The idea is for each person to unwrap a smile by the end of the long holiday season. Check out our gift guide for some of our favorites under $20.

Share your fun ways of fueling your team with us—we love hearing from you!
